2017 (English)In: The Disorder of Mathematics Education: Challenging the Sociopolitical Dimensions of Research / [ed] Hauke Straehler-Pohl, Nina Bohlmann, Alexandre Pais, Springer, 2017, 135-152 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Studying mathematics teachers in the Political invites to understand how teachers’ subjectivities emerge in the entanglement of the individual in discursive-material formations. We focus on the power effects of the expert discourses by international agencies such as OECD and UNESCO in the fabrication of the mathematics teacher’s subjectivity. Deploying a Foucault-inspired discourse analysis on a series of documents produced by these agencies, we argue that nowadays cultural thesis about who the mathematics teacher should be are framed in a double bind of the teacher as a policy product and as a sales agent. Narratives about the mathematics teacher are made possible within a dispositive of control, which makes mathematics education and mathematics teachers the cornerstone for realizing current market-oriented, competitive, and globalized societies.
